Description

Background: Simulation-based interprofessional education is challenging to implement, especially on rural campuses.
Aim: Using a telehealth IPE scenario developed for rural pre-licensure healthcare students, this project: 1) examined the feasibility of implementing a simulation-based IPE experience; and 2) explored student perceptions of inter-professional teamwork, roles and responsibilities, and patient outcomes for collaborative practice.
Methods: A mixed-methods approach guided analysis.
Results: Integrated results revealed the majority of students agreed/strongly agreed the IPE experience resembled a real-life situation, and recommended this experience to their peers. Significant positive changes in attitudes towards using an inter-professional team approach were noted for pharmacy as compared to nursing students. Challenges included unfamiliarity with the telehealth equipment; students offered suggestions for scenario improvement.
Conclusion: Complex healthcare requires a collaborative approach to patient care. Simulation-based IPE using “remote in” technology allows for the development and mastery of these competencies, while overcoming barriers to implementation common to rural areas.
